Following the success of the Pirate Party’s ‘Un-Conference’ in Salford, the London branch is bringing the best bits down South as well!
It’s clear that the Pirate Party is needed more than ever. From mass surveillance, restoring confidence in our broken democracy, making politics something everyone can take part in, challenging international agreements that threaten our freedoms, we’re dealing with issues that other parties aren’t.
Come and join us to kick off the General Election campaigning in London. It’s a chance to meet other like minded people, discuss policy, meet candidates and learn what you can do to help and get involved.
We like to do things differently, so we are ‘hacking’ the old fashioned party conference idea. You don’t need to be a member to come, and feel free to pop in for as much or as little as you like. We’d be really happy to see you even if you’ve never taken part actively in politics before.
The Pirates have always challenged the norm, and our conferences and branch meets are no exception.
We have a compact but packed timetable for the Saturday afternoon – hearing about the goals we want to set for the London branch in this election, hearing why the Pirate Party is needed more than ever and learning what we can all do to volunteer and help.
Additionally, and perhaps most interestingly we will be running a ‘crowdsourced’ policy process. This is open to everyone – members and non-members. We recognise that we don’t have all the answers, but collectively we can do – this is your chance to get involved and highlight problems, suggest policy solutions and discuss the evidence base behind them. So if you have wondered why there is no political party suggesting X then come and suggest it to us – we might just take it up!
Where: Montgomery Hall, Kennington Oval (between the Ovalhouse Theatre and Archbishop Tenison’s school) – very easy walk from Oval tube, short walk from Vauxhall.
